Plain Black (my company) will be holding our WebGUI (plainblack.com/webgui) conference 
in Chicago this year at the end of October. We're looking for qualified experts to come 
in and give lectures/seminars on Perl, Apache, MySQL, and Linux.

We have volunteer openings as well as paid spots. What we pay you will depend upon your 
qualifications, subject matter, and length of presentation (or presentations). The fee 
is negotiable.

Specific subjects we'd like to cover with experts are:

Apache security
Apache performance tuning
MySQL performance tuning
Scalability with LAMP (Linux/Apache/MySQL/Perl) including clustering, load balancing, 
Linux security
Linux performance tuning as a web application server
Intro to Perl
Writing tests (load, error, security) in Perl
Using Perl for system administration

If you have an alternate topic that you think might be useful to our users feel free to 
bring it up. Other topics we cover will be WebGUI programming, administration, security, 
scalability, templating, etc. As well as some general web design topics.

Everyone that presents (whether paid or not) will get in to the conference for free, and 
get all of the conference freebies (food, shirts, pens, backpacks, hats, and other 
schwag) for free.

Feel free to pass this email along to people who may be interested.

Contact me (jt at plainblack.com) if you're interested. You must be able to prove your 
qualifications (work history, books, articles, training certifications, etc) to present 
on any of these topics.
